The Next Frontier of
Chronic Disease:
The Glycocalyx

Presented by
David Haase, MD

What to expect

The interior of blood and lymphatic vessel walls is lined with the endothelium, a well-understood anatomical feature. More recently described is the glycocalyx, a brush border that lines the endothelium and regulates what leaves the blood to enter tissues. As the glycocalyx fails, its ability to regulate blood/tissue interaction becomes impaired. Clinically, this can present as microcirculation issues, slow infection recovery, and treatment-resistant chronic ailments. The glycocalyx functions as a systemic, controlled delivery feature, routing oxygen, nutrients, medicines, and cell-repair molecules to where they’re needed in body tissues. When the glycocalyx function is impaired, medically proven protocols may fail because the treatment can’t reach the tissues it was designed to heal.

Join integrative medicine expert David Haase, MD, to learn about the glycocalyx lining, how it functions, how it degenerates, and how to recover and maintain healthy glycocalyx function. In this webinar, treatment protocols will be discussed.
